Press Statement

…Says President’s Booing In Borno Shows Nigerians’ Loss of Confidence

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) charges President Muhammadu Buhari to

go beyond his sympathy visit to Borno state and take decisive steps to

end the killings in that state and other parts of the country.

The party said the booing of President Buhari in Borno state is a clear

message to him that Nigerians hold him responsible for the escalated

insecurity in the country.

It (booing) also shows a loss of confidence in the Buhari Presidency and

the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The PDP demands that Mr. President should not limit his visit to Borno

state but also visit other parts of the country, including Kaduna, Kano,

Benue, Plateau, Yobe, Adamawa, Zamfara, Kogi, Niger, Taraba and other

states to face the feelings of Nigerians as well as view the national

devastation his poor handling of security and infrastructure has caused

our nation.

The party hopes that the visit to Borno state, which came only after the

PDP and Nigerians criticized Mr. President for his aloofness,

particularly over the Auno killing on Sunday, is not part of the usual

presidential media stunts that will not be followed with a corresponding

action to track down killers and end terrorism.

The PDP further charges Mr. President to endeavour to go on subsequent

visits by road in order to see and feel the agony Nigerians are being

subjected to with the parlous state of our road infrastructure and

security network under the incompetent and unresponsive Buhari

Presidency and APC.

Our party holds that Nigerians do not deserve a distant President, who

sits in the comfort of the Presidential villa and luxury jets, remaining

indifferent to the pains, anguish and torments that compatriots suffer

on daily basis.

The PDP hereby calls on Mr. President to quickly embark on these visits

and monitor, on first hand basis, the damage which his administration

has caused and for which Nigerians are demanding that he resigns and

allow more competent hands to manage the affairs of our nation.

It is only after these visits that the Buhari Presidency will appreciate

that those calling on him to rejig the nation’s security architecture

mean well for our dear country.
